Great local place with friendly ambiance that makes everyone feel comfortable. Really good food for a variety of tastes with a low stress atmosphere. Food and service was Goldilocks .... not too fast, not too slow. Just right.

A group of us recently stopped in after a graveside service. The staff was most accomodating and thoughtful. The tavern-style menu offered what we wanted. The soups and burgers were delicious! The building is handicap accessible.

Was once my favorite place to hang out but a few of the bartenders are not very friendly like the old timers so I won't be going back to Kelly's as much
